Research Reveals that Young Adults in a Relationship Remain Away from Alcohol, Smoking
According to a recent study, marriage helps in stabilizing human behavior. The research also reveals that young adults, who are in a romantic relationship in two years after high school do not indulge much in heavy drinking or smoking marijuana. The research observations were published in the Journal of Health and Social Behavior.
Study Author, Charles Fleming, a Research Scientist at the University of Washington, reveals that people working with young adults and parents of young adults should be aware of this new research.
In the study, the researchers examined surveys of 909 people who were followed from first or second grade to the high school level. They came to know that young people in the age group 19-20, who were not in a stable relationship, are 40% more likely to take up drinking or to start smoking marijuana.
Fleming and his group concluded that partner support could be one reason behind this behavior. Other reason could also be that such people are happy in their relationships and they are unable to find time for socializing.
However, the study also revealed that young people who are in a relationship with a drinker or a marijuana smoker are more likely to take up drinking or smoking.
